Nicht zu verpassen DOK. fest München 7-14/5 !

In seinem 29. Jahr ist das DOK.fest, das Internationale Dokumentarfilmfestival München, längst eine etablierte Größe. Wettbewerb, Festival-Specials, ein umfassendes Rahmenprogramm und ein Forum bieten Zusehern wie auch Branchenkennern eine Plattform, um internationale Produktionen zu sehen, sich über Dokumentarfilme auszutauschen und auch eigene Ideen vorzubringen.
62148_1 Daniel Sponsel, Festivalleiter

In weniger als einer Woche startet das DOK.fest in seine letzte Zwanziger-Runde: 135 Dokumentarfilme aus 41 Ländern werden vom 7. bis zum 14. Mai 2014 an elf Spielorten gezeigt. Drei Wettbewerbsreihen küren die besten Filme, Brasilien ist diesjähriges Gastland, eine Retrospektive widmet sich den Arbeiten der britischen Filmemacherin Kim Longinotto
longinotto2
und Specials, Musikfilme und die erstmalig statt findende Best-of-Oscar-Reihe bieten Dokumentarfilmfans eine Woche lang fast rund um die Uhr Information, Inspiration und ein unterhaltsames und reichhaltiges Programm.

Ein wichtiger Teil des Festivals ist die Branchen- und Nachwuchsplattform DOK.forum. Der Treffpunkt für die Branche wartet mit einem vielfältigen Programm in drei Teilbereichen auf: Das “Filmschulfestival” hat in diesem Jahr elf Hochschulen zu Gast. Die “Perspektiven” diskutieren unterschiedlichste Themen – von 3D, über die Qualität des Fernsehens für seine jungen Zuschauer bis hin zu neuen Vernetzungsmöglichkeiten – in spannenden und besuchenswerten Workshops und Werkstätten.

Der dritte Teil unter dem Namen “Marktplatz” bringt im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes alle Entscheider an einen Tisch: Während der Roundtables auf dem DOK.forum Marktplatz, die sich als Bühne für neue Projekte verstehen, stellen Filmemacher, Autoren und Regisseure ihre Konzepte und Ideen vor
namhaften Redakteuren, Produzenten und Vertrieben sowie Verleihern vor. Die moderierten Runden – ihr Fokus liegt auf dem deutschsprachigen Produktionsraum – sind thematisch zusammengestellt und finden auch zu Spezialthemen wie Crowdfunding, Distribution, Digital Workflow oder Cross
Media statt.
